Full Circle Moment.

Still writing about my changes and my transitions with my move to New York… Sometimes I have to be patient with myself…and it requires yielding without protesting . There’s a word for it. It’s called acquiescing . I mean, that’s what you do when your soul fights ( that’s a strong word, yet an accurate…

Wow!

New beginnings happen every day. Sometimes they happen by choice. Oftentimes, they happen of our own volition and personal priorities. I was thinking today about how I got here to where I am , today. For some reason, my spiritual life led me back to my hometown. Now I have to determine if I desire…

Taking Flight.

Today I caught a plane. I remember when I used to be so excited to get in planes and travel . I almost even took a job once that allowed me to travel, the time just wasn’t right. I had just gotten married and I was not willing to take the risk of losing my…

Where I Find Rest.

I have found rest in some of the smallest uncozy spaces . And then when I see this frustrated, restless self of mine, I regroup. My rest often hides in spaces I haven’t been in a while . I am finding rest in books. Books titled “Present Over Perfect.” I’m learning here, in the book…

Happy Fourth!

Happy Fourth! In this crazy world where freedoms seem to be changing and lessening, and life seems to be challenged on every side, don’t neglect yourself in practicing necessary freedoms – like finding joy in nature dancing to awesome music; cherishing family and loved ones- and just watching fireworks .

Yesterday.

Yesterday I had a meaningful conversation with my Pastor, Pastor Mike, Pastor of Transformation Church, in Tulsa Oklahoma. Today’s post is just giving honor where honor is due. Pastor Mike and I have attended the same church for several years; even before he became pastor . His ability to rally up youth and bring them…

Once upon a time…

Once upon a time i turned fifty . This beautiful chandelier was at a Air B& B home we rented  on my 50th Birthday😍 for a weekend and just chilled out relaxing in it. It was in the country, in Oklahoma. But I loved it. Never considered myself a country girl. But the laid-blackness and…

Great Question!

Yes…I love thinking and asking questions. Perhaps asking questions have been my pathway to self- reflection and self- evaluation, personal growth and change. Possibly a lot more so now that I am married to a man who loves the questioning – even more than me. (smile) God values our minds. Engaging with HIm and bringing…

A Hard Year?

Whenever I have a year that starts out pretty severe and intense; I take stock, ‘hold onto my hat’ and I say I’m gonna do my best to stay with the ride. This has been one of those years . As I speak, the Arkansas River has poured into the backyard of the apartment where…

On Being Emotionally Safe.

So about a week ago I was sitting with a group of people and we were discussing a few challenges with conflict; and being and living emotionally safe . I didn’t realize I that emotionally, I had been holding onto some stuff due to an illness I was having and it made me feel completely…
